* Winery information
Georges Noëllat was the nephew of Charles Noëllat, who was once the proprietor of one of Vosne’s greatest domaines—a domaine who made important contributions to Domaines Jean-Jacques Confuron and Hudelot Noëllat, and even formed the vast majority of Domaine Leroy. As of 1990, Domaine Georges Noëllat sold its production to Jadot and Drouhin for 20 years. Enter 20-year-old Maxime Cheurlin in 2010, who consequently took over the management of the estate from his grandmother. Cheurlin grew up in Champagne, but it seems Burgundy wine is truly in his blood as he is a nephew of the Jayer family and a cousin of Emmanuel Rouget’s sons. Thus, he complemented his winemaking studies at the Lycée du Viticole in Beaune.
아직은 상당히 어린 와인임에도 불구하고 nose 하나만큼은 정말 매력적인 퍼포먼스를 보여주었다.
반면 palate는 2015 빈티지보다 오히려 더 단단한 느낌을 주었는데 최소 2~3년 정도 셀러링이 필요해 보였다.
최근 ㅁㅊ가는 부르고뉴 와인 가격을 생각할때 이만한 value 와인을 찾기도 쉽지 않을듯..
